Oscar Tree Service
This is the only professional tree service that I have ever wanted to rave about. I called to get an estimate, 20 mins later the owner shows up provides me insight into my 80 year old dead tree, gives me the estimate breakdown which was very reasonable and on top of that offers to make sure my huge tree is cut so I can utilize it for firewood. He said they would start at 8:30AM which they did, four very nice workers showed up and explained what they needed to do, and got to work right away. For the entire thing, cutting the tree, organizing and cutting the wood for firewood (placing it very nice in a stack), grinding the stump, cleaning up (which they did very well), and planting a new cedar tree the whole process was done by 12:30PM. Everyone of the workers was nice, diligent, and knew there job well. I would recommend Oscar's Tree Service to anyone, prices are reasonable, service is excellent, and he provides forethought for this customers needs.

Oscar Tree Service
Yes, he's cheap, but you get what you pay for. If you want your trees removed, then Oscar can do that. If you want your trees sculpted then go elsewhere.
Tips & Advices
Do your due diligence and always ask for proof of insurance and certification before agreeing to any work. You will also want to be on the lookout for telltale signs of scams and be cautious of any company that:
  • Will not provide you with a certificate of their insurance policy or only has general liability coverage
  • Declines to give you a written estimate for the job
  • Gives you bids that either seem very low or very high
  • Contacted you out of the blue to see if you needed their services
  • Has complaints against it from business bureaus in your area
  • Asks for payment before starting work
  • Doesn't have a fixed physical address
Tree service companies are also great places to get your wood if you happen to have a fireplace. Many tree businesses offer free delivery and stacking of hardwoods, such as maple or birch. These can make for the best firewood because they burn slowly and don't produce as much smoke as other types.
If you want to add to the greenery in your yard but you're concerned about the right species to plant or where to put it on your property, seek the advice of an arborist.
If a storm hits and damages your residence, a tree service professional is usually on your list of people to call for help after first responders and your insurer. A professional service can completely remove a tree or just prune and saw off its branches if a storm damages a tree. After sawing or destroying the tree, professionals can then remove any of the dangerous debris from your yard by hauling it off.
Some bugs burrow through the bark and damage hardwood and softwood trees. Depending on the species of trees in your yard and the region of the country you live in, aphids, the infamous emerald ash borer or other pests could destroy your healthy trees.
